Commentary by Stephen Downes

More coverage of the content industry's attempts to lean on university administrations to prohibit file sharing by students over university networks. This article covers a presentation by Jonathan Zuck, president of the Association for Competitive Technology (but conveniently omits to inform readers that ACT is closely allied with Microsoft, representing the Redmond position on such issues as anti-trust issues, digital rights, software copying, and privacy). The presentation was the usual "your students are thieves" message - oddly ironic, given the source.
